Now it is official

    2

    Now it is official. Obesity is rampant in rural India. It only gets worse in urban India. In many ways, Indian lifestyle and dietary habits are extremely unhealthy. It is extremely carbohydrate and sugar rich. Green vegetables and fruits form only a miniscule part of the diet. The failure is at all levels:

    1. No awareness that Indians are eating an unhealthy diet.

    2. Lack of fitness culture. It is only now the Bollywood is introducing the trend of toned and glamorous body. Sadly, it would be a long time before this much needed trend reaches rural India given that much of India is still very conservative where showing off one’s body is frowned upon.

    3. Shortage of healthy food such as vegetables, fruits, dairy products, etc. Very few Indians even realize that fat-free milk which is ubiquitously sold in India is terrible for health because it is packed with sugars.

    4. The urban pastime seems to be eating at restaurants and watching mega serials. In Chennai, I am disappointed to see that even residential neighborhoods have been converted into restaurants and every street is packed with those.

    This is a ticking time bomb which would drain Indian economy. Do you eat more than two thin chapattis in a day? Do you eat sambar rice + rasam rice + curd rice? Do you add sugar to anything at all? Shame on you. Anything more than 50 g of carb/day is very harmful. Two thin chapattis or a really small cup of cooked rice alone provide it. If you’re eating anything more, you’re eating unhealthy. You’re also preparing yourself for an early and inglorious death. You are being irresponsible because you don’t realize that your children would pay the price for your unhealthy lifestyle.

    Part 1 – Secular Sweetness

      0

      In marriage, we should seek complement (not ‘compliment’ 🙂 ) in each other. If my wife and I share same taste, same inclination and same capability, there is no growth for each other. Successful marriages celebrates complements. To be complement of someone means to make other self complete or perfect; supply what is wanting or form the complement to. Being complement nurtures sense of fulfillment.

      Response?

      Very true. Superb! So sweet! That is how we should choose better half!
      ———————————–
      Part 2 – So called communal non-sweet truth

      Gotra means lineage. We Sanatani(s) trace our ancestry to seven rishis. We call ourselves Rishi putra.

      So does this imply a belief in exclusive lineage? The answer becomes clear when you read in the Vedas that the seven rishis reside in the brain as far as आधिभौतिक plane of the Universe matters!

      The primal rishis are the senses, or cognitive centers. The rishi lineages or Gotra simply celebrate the association of one dominant sense or another in the family’s ancient history.

      So if someone get married in same lineage, सगोत्र , he and she miss the chance of being complement! And very purpose of spiritual progress by Grihasthi is forfeited as dominant sense in both wife and husband will consciously or subconsciously strive for competition and not the complement.

      Of course, it is different thing that our blood is corrupted to the core in past 2500 years. But that does not mean, we mock the tradition. Corrections are always welcomed.
      =====================
      Few days back, I had discussion about how sex exchanges vital प्राण and why multiple-sex partners is physical, mental and spiritual stress. I also discussed such uncontrolled indulgences as root causes of fatal sicknesses, not limited to cancer, AIDS and immuno-suppression.

      Recollect that post with the concept of Gotra. Before marriage, you (bride) have Gotra from father but after marriage, since you live life with the environment shared by another Gotra, you slowly develop inclination for the new family’s strengths. Your Gotra changes. Some new hidden potential emerges with legacy from biological parents. गृहस्थ maturity for both bride and groom. That is the time when mother of the groom hands over or share the home-management to/with newly wedded bride.

      =====================
      What I wrote above is highly superficial but common sense. More research and realization required. 🙂

      Such a wonderful way of living gifted by our forefathers! Alas! 🙁 We now act like a generation of rational fools. 🙁

      “What I dig is very potent herb to increase strength.”

        0

        इमां खनाम्योषधिं वीरुधं बलवत्तमाम् । ऋग्वेद: सूक्तं १०.१४५
        “What I dig is very potent herb to increase strength.”

        Excuse my faulty translation but there are interesting dots to connect.

        1) शारीरिक & प्राणिक बल are necessary to earn पुरुषार्थ (धर्म,अर्थ,काम,मोक्ष) and perform our duties towards the Universe with least errors.

        2) In my understanding, when grown in soil nurtured and kindled with Prana(प्राण) by gobar, mutra and butter milk of Desi Gau, Vegetables from कंद वर्ग (the ones that we dig) grows in the epicenter of rich Pranic environment. And this Prana is not Raw Prana like other vegetables and fruits get from the Sun by photosynthesis and external environment. It is digested Prana or churned prana. Churning prana makes its potency manifold. So they are full of प्राणिक बल. Since they are the roots, they have most possible essence of all physical nutrients.

        3) कंद वर्ग’s vegetables is main food for ऋषि पञ्चमी. That means, to nurture the ऋषि अंश settled at our subtle senses can realize their full potential with the help of कंद वर्ग.

        4) In most cases, you dig them only when they plant completes its life cycle. For example, I dig my turmeric only when all its leaves are dried and gone.

        Keep an eye on seasonal कंद वर्ग vegetables and include them in your meals. Of course, nothing worth without Gau mata.

        House-building is an expression of civilization

          0

          House-building is an expression of civilization, but only an expression. Culture and civilization are more intrinsic. Highly developed saints have lived a simpler life and dispensed with many things which are counted among necessaries by civilized people.

          Reference of houses in the the Veda is marvelously excellent.

          उपमितां प्रतिमितामथो परिमितामुत ।
          शालाया विश्ववाराया नद्धानि वि चृतामसि ॥१॥
          हविर्धानमग्निशालं पत्नीनां सदनं सदः ।
          सदो देवानामसि देवि शाले ॥७॥

          “We lay the strong foundation of a house which is well-ventilated, beautiful with parts symmetrically corresponding to each other and measured or enclosed all round”
          “Its main four parts are store-house, kitchen, bed room and drawing room.”

          House is the center of the house-holders’ universe. My home is center of my universe. Bhuvanasya nabhi. Center of universe is to realize center of life. For healthy spiritual journey of husband-wife, home-building is important exercise.

          Rigveda says:

          ता वं वास्तून्युश्मसि गमध्यै यत्र गावो भूरिश्र्ङगायासः | अत्राह तदुरुगायस्य वर्ष्णः परमं पदमव भाति भूरि ||

          “O husband and wife, we design for your habitation a house wherein sun-rays come plentifully. Here in such a well-ventilated house can dawn upon you the divine light whereby you may realize the super most stage of God.”

          Physical openness leads to spiritual openness. A good well-ventilated and hygienically built house is the fittest abode for Godly and spiritually advanced persons. The house is not only an enclosure of bricks and stones but a place where the members of the family regulate their habits and advance step by step towards the spiritual Goal of life.

          Goal is understood. Next, what material to use to build center of the universe.

          Raw lemons are full of vitamin C and potassium.

            0

            The brain normally contains one of the highest concentrations of vitamin C in the body. Experimentally, it has been shown that following a brain injury, the ascorbic acid (vitamin C) levels in the brain begin to fall rapidly.

            Any injury to the nervous system, whether it is a stroke, infection, or chronic degenerative disease. Such patients should be given extra doses of vitamin C, E, and the other antioxidant vitamins and minerals.

            The potassium helps the brain and nerve cells, improves concentration, memory and calms the mind.

            Raw lemons are full of vitamin C and potassium.

            Chilli contains capsaicin and excellent neurotransmitter. Capsaicin particles penetrate your skin, move through the tissue, and trigger deeper nerves. It releases endorphins and gives a feeling of happiness and well being. Chillies too are high in vitamin C (about twice that of citrus fruits), dried chillies are very high in vitamin A, and red chillies are a great source of b-carotene. Chillies have antibacterial qualities, and contain bioflavinoids, anti-oxidants most common in apple juice.

            The tradition of keeping nimbu-mirchi at home is not just superstition. It indeed helps neurotransmitters and keeps mind subtly alert. When eaten, it helps brain physically to remain alert. When mind and brain are in sync and alert, we take decisions with wakeful state.

            Do a google scholar search and you will find thousands research suggesting strong connection of lemon-chilli duo with brain.

            It’s not a joke. Your grand-mother is no wrong when she suggests you using nimbu-mirchi at home. Visually, it keeps mind alert. Physically, it keeps brain alert.

            Bacteria have developed intricate communication capabilities

              0

              And we kill them with antibiotics! Fools we are! 😀

              “Bacteria have developed intricate communication capabilities (e.g. quorum-sensing, chemotactic signaling and plasmid exchange) to cooperatively self-organize into highly structured colonies with elevated environmental adaptability. We propose that bacteria use their intracellular flexibility, involving signal transduction networks and genomic plasticity, to collectively maintain linguistic communication: self and shared interpretations of chemical cues, exchange of chemical messages (semantic) and dialogues (pragmatic). Meaning-based communication permits colonial identity, intentional behavior (e.g. pheromone-based courtship for mating), purposeful alteration of colony structure (e.g. formation of fruiting bodies), decision-making (e.g. to sporulate) and the recognition and identification of other colonies – features we might begin to associate with a bacterial social intelligence. Such a social intelligence, should it exist, would require going beyond communication to encompass unknown additional intracellular processes to generate inheritable colonial memory and commonly shared genomic context.”

                Desi cow’s milk and urine contains Gold oxides. But we are least bothered. And we will sleep while mother is slaughtered mindlessly. All with govt support.

                  Whatever is consistent with right objective reasoning should be accepted even if it comes from a boy or a parrot, and whatever is not, should be rejected even if it comes from an old man or the great sage Śrī Śuka himself.

                  Side note 2: John Paul Holdren is senior advisor to President Barack Obama. In his report titled
                  ‘Eco-science,Population,Resources,Environment’,submitted to government in 1970s, he mentioned that, population in third world countries like India will be prime issue for US. To serve the US interests, he recommended to add contraceptive chemicals in processed food, bottled water and soft drinks to have random but systematic population control.

                  What is poison for you, may not be true for me

                    0

                    What is poison for you, may not be true for me.

                    Something is poison when it is given in overdose against the capacity of digestive fire to digest it. Bodily fire to assimilate it with body. Or when it is प्राणविहीन e.g. feeding formula, urea, processed food etc.

                    Fertilizers for crops and feeding formula for infants – both are poison as they are burden for digestive fire.

                    Society that promotes chemical fertilizers for crops and feeding formula for kids, is sick and insane society. We are . Our govt is! (Neem coated urea! 😀lol )

                    Reference:

                    Premature infants fed formula are more likely to develop necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) than those who are breastfed, but the mechanisms of intestinal necrosis in NEC and protection by breast milk are unknown. We hypothesized that after lipase digestion, formula, but not fresh breast milk, contains levels of unbound free fatty acids (FFAs) that are cytotoxic to intestinal cells.

                    Lipase digestion of formula, but not milk, caused significant death of neutrophils (ranging from 47 to 99% with formulas vs. 6% with milk) with similar results in endothelial and epithelial cells. FFAs were significantly elevated in digested formula vs. milk and death from formula was significantly decreased with lipase inhibitor pretreatment, or treatments to bind FFAs. Protease digestion significantly increased FFA binding capacity of formula and milk but only enough to decrease cytotoxicity from milk.

                    Gold greed profit

                      0

                      Yesterday, when I shared news of Gold in Gau-mutra, many colleagues and friends focused only on Gold greed profit! Using mother for Gold alchemy!

                      Ha ha!! such a gutter level mentality our youth possesses! Sick!

                      Gold is nothing when we try to understand real nature of mother’s blessing.

                      Here is one example:

                      Vatsanabha is a toxic plant. But Gau mata can provide prasad, using which toxicity of Vatsanabha can be detoxified.

                      Purified and detoxified Vatsanabha can be used to cure:

                      1) Aconitum ferox is pungent, bitter and astringent in taste. It acts as Yogavahi – a catalyst for other medicines.
                      2) It is rejuvenative, balances Tridosha, especially Vata and Kapha.
                      3) It improves digestion, relieves coldness, nutritive and improves strength.
                      4) It is used in Ayurvedic treatment of indigestion, anorexia, spleen disorders, gout, cough, asthma.
                      5) It is used in the treatment of vision problems, night blindness, eye infections, inflammation, otitis, headache.
                      6) It is useful to relieve headache, sciatica, backache.
                      7) It is used as antidote for poisoning due to rats, rodents, scorpion and snake bites.

                      But our modern buddhus (fools) in urban set up cannot realize value of Gau-mata. Fools consider Gau-mutra as waste. They teach their kids that it is dirty! 😀

                      We have become so lazy and laggard that we can hardly realize value of Gau and protect her.

                      Imagine if your kids are blessed by Gau-prasad (mutra,milk,ghee)? Imagine their physical strength! But…only when we get time from our pastime wastages and spend time at Gau-shala!
